Trash To Treasure Bikes
"Our mission is to provide access to safe and reliable transportation for students and children in need by collecting and repairing gently used bikes that would otherwise be discarded. We believe that every child deserves the opportunity to experience the joy and freedom of riding a bike, and we work to make this a reality for families who may not have the means to purchase a new one. Through our transportation service, we make it easy for individuals and organizations to donate their unused bikes, and we take care of the rest. By partnering with schools, youth centers, and other non-profits, we strive to create a positive impact in communities across the country."
When you donate a bike or make a financial contribution to T3Bikes, you are making a positive impact in multiple ways. Not only will you potentially receive tax savings, but you will also be helping to provide a student or child with a bike and promoting a healthy lifestyle through cycling. In addition, your donation helps to reduce bike waste and contribute to a cleaner and safer environment by recycling bikes and diverting them from landfills.
Donation Receipts are available with every contribution
"In fact, bikes are produced at a rate two times higher than cars. Considering these staggering numbers, it's no surprise bike waste is a problem worldwide. It's estimated roughly 15 million bikes are discarded by their owners every year. And, unsurprisingly, many of these unwanted bikes end up in landfills" (Thomson, 2020).
